Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 is out now!

You can play it on Xbox or Steam, but Game Pass subscribers won’t have to pay a thing extra. To buy it on Steam costs $49.99, and by the looks of the promotional material, you’ll get your money’s worth.

Senua’s Saga is the second game in the series, coming six years after the initial Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice. You follow the story of Senua, a Nordic warrior who must combat the gods and the Northmen alike to conquer her inner darkness.

The first game delved deeply into the concepts of psychosis. This offered great exposure to a mental disorder that can be so commonly misunderstood. The game recommends wearing headphones because of the binaural audio used to bring the voices in Senua’s head to life. If the first game was any indication, Senua’s Saga should be just as well-rounded of an experience.

The gameplay consists more of exploration and linear storytelling than combat, although the consequences for losing in combat are severe. The next installment will likely follow a similar pattern as the first, but there’s no way to predict exactly what kind of wild ride it will be.

That’s the release countdown for Senua’s Saga, Hellblade 2. Ready your best headphones and get ready to fight your way through the darkness, and don’t forget to check back here for guides if you need help with any puzzles. To hold you over until it’s here, give Hades 2 a try, on the note of great sequels.
